GAME OVER is a drama that tells the story of EVA, a young mother fighting to make ends meet. She tries to balance her studies, her job, and her young child which leaves no time for her to enjoy her youth. The central conflict of GAME OVER is between Eva and her boyfriend and the father, DAVE, who is addicted to video games.
